Chevron-led Kazakh oil producer's 2012 output slips-paper
ALMATY Jan 16 (Reuters) - Output at Tengizchevroil, Kazakhstan's largest oil producer, slipped to 25.1 million tonnes in 2012 from 25.8 million a year earlier, shareholder Lukoil Overseas said in its corporate newspaper.
It earned a net profit of $8.6 billion last year, it said, without providing comparative data for 2011.
U.S. energy major Chevron holds a 50-percent stake in the venture, U.S. firm ExxonMobil owns 25 percent, Kazakh state oil company KazMunaiGas has 20 percent and Lukarco, controlled by Lukoil, the remaining 5 percent.
Overall oil output in Kazakhstan, the second-largest ex-Soviet producer after Russia, fell by 1.1 percent to 79.2 million tonnes last year.
